Match Timings: 19.30 start, First Session 19.30-20.55, Interval 20.55-21.15, Second Session 21.15-22.40
After a very long time, Mohammad Amir is going on top in most wickets takers list with five wickets in six overs with 25 runs, Hussain Talat took three as same as Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz. From West Indies bowling performance only RR Emrit took two wickets and OF Smith. R Powell, KMA Paul, KOK Williams all of them took one wicket each of them. Today’s match is very important for West Indies. Because they must have to get at least one victory from this tour but all Pakistani bowlers are on fire in these days even new players all of them.
As we said: Shaheen Shah Afridi will debut tonight. Wasim Akram handed him his debut cap moments ago. Just had a look at the pitch – it’s hard and shiny so expect runs tonight as well.
Jason Mohammed: “Just something different. We chased the first two games. We’ll take anything over 170-180. Want to finish strong. We’ve not had any significant partnerships, so hopefully, we get a couple tonight. Kesrick is out, Andre McCarthy will debut.”
Sarfraz: “We wanted to bat too, but now let’s try to chase it down. We have the batsmen and the bowlers, so look to do well batting second. Two changes: Shaheen and Usman are in. Amir and Hasan Ali are being rested.”
